About the Owner

Anne Marie and Gerard, the owners, have always liked to receive their friends and family. That's why they have decided to move to Charente and buy a property : Le Clos Marie.

Gerard is fond of writing and works in the garden. Anne-Marie likes painting, and all artistic activities but she is also a great cook who likes to use local and regional products.

They enjoy showing their guests all the different activities offered in the area and will be pleased to help you in your discovery of the region.

Excellent, good location, clean and friendly hosts

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the large yellow/grey room at the B&B. It was very big and amity for us two but could hold an extra 2 children or adults aswell. The hosts were friendly but not intrusive, breakfast good and a good location for our trips to Saintes, La Rochelle, ie de re and Cognac.

Lovely gite and lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for two weeks in this lovely gite which offers all kitchen amenities, and is very clean and contempory. The beds were very comfortable and it was nice to have an ensuite bathroom for us as well as one for the kids. The village is very quiet and lazing around the pool was very relaxing. Its a great area for walking and cycling an not too far from the beach.

Mr and Mrs Grandjean-Lhoste are very kind and welcoming and very helpful.

From the Owner

We love this area and especially the calm of our countryside, the cultural venues. It's not so far from big cities such as Niort. We are 1 hour from the sea. We have the TGV station Niort and the airport La Rochelle close to our home so it's easy to visit us.

From the Owner

Our property is in the typical style of Charente houses and has been renovated keeping the original features like the stoned walls and beams. If you feel like a moment of relaxation you will find a spot in the large garden which in season is full of roses. Or you may prefer to find a sunbed around the swimming pool for sunbathing or swimming in the crystal clear water. You can also enjoy a drink and a good book on the terrace.
